St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout

Quick Thursday Review.

Having this Monday night with a cookie.  The cookie was chocoloate chip coconut, macadamia nut.  It was fantastic.

The beer was… bitter.  Most oatmeal stouts have a nice sweet finish.  This one didn’t.  The smell was boozy, despite a relatively low 5% alcohol content.  I could smell the grains and oats, but I couldn’t taste them.

The beer wasn’t clean with it’s bitter finish either.  Hung around for a while.  It’s a drinkable beer, though.  One you could knock back quickly. The best part of this beer was the pour.  Take a look at that head.  That head is noteworthy.

Usually when you get a pour like that, you’re expecting a HUGE mouthfeel.  A beer you want to hang out with.

This one just didn’t go with my dessert.
